I must say that I am surprised by the review from simonp820. I have just returned from my third stay at Plas Curig with my five children and two dogs and have, as on every other occasion, found the whole experience, from booking to checking out, remarkably easy and highly enjoyable. The online booking system and confirmation is very straightforward: if you don’t show within the cancellation period then they take your money, a system that is used in lots of hostels we have stayed in. I can only presume that simonp820 had some sort of technical glitch?
The thing that always gets me is that the hostel far exceeds expectations. The welcome from the very friendly team is always warm, nothing appears to be too much trouble and the decor is quite outstanding - not your average hostel here! My children love the bunk beds with their privacy curtains and enough space on one bed for them all to gather and play cards - we take a 6 bed dorm and there is plenty of room for all our gear and the dogs and what a joy to arrive to ready made beds after a very long drive. The catering facilities are great (I just wish some people would leave it as they found it....) and the Loos and showers are wonderful. We love going and we will definitely be returning. And the beer and food at the Bryn Tyrch next door are always excellent.
